U's duo poised to miss Robins clash
Izzet is suspended following his red card in last weekend's goalless draw at Southampton, and centre-half Baldwin was stretchered off with a leg injury which will sideline him for a few weeks. David Fox could return in the centre and Matt Heath, who replaced Baldwin at St Mary's, is in line to start. Injury-hit striker Steven Gillespie (hamstring) played half an hour for the reserves in midweek but is short of match fitness and Lee Beevers (shoulder), Paul Reid and Jamie Guy (both knee) are still out. New boss Boothroyd sprang a couple of surprises when he named his first U's line-up with rare starts for full-back John White and winger Anthony Wordsworth as well as a debut for John-Joe O'Toole.
